ENSENADA ARMY LIFE.
• War, or rumor of war, has spoiled
the easy going army life at the cuartel
down in Ensenada. Formerly the of
ficers lived ~at home and only reported
at the barracks for occasional duty.
But since the outbreak in Mexico, the
officers have to stay within the cuartel
all the time, drilling their 300 soldiers
up to the highest efficiency. Reports
from Ensenada tell that the military
demonstrations there are greatly in
variance with the peaceful ways of
the citizens. — San Diego Sun. '
